An elderly man filed a legal challenge to San Diego’s strict and biased concealed carry permit law. He said he wanted the right to carry a gun, concealed or openly, with him when leaving his house for self-defense, but could not because of the strict law. A lower court ruled in his favor, but then a higher court overturned that lower court ruling, forcing the case to be brought to the Supreme Court. On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, leaving the strict gun control law in place.
Gun owners were disappointed Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take perhaps the highest-profile Second Amendment case in the country right now:Peruta v. California.
Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch share those gun owners’ disappointment, declaring the need for the nation’s highest court to require adherence to its Second Amendment precedents.
The Supreme Court has only decided two cases on the right to keep and bear arms: D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. Both involved a law-abiding citizen seeking a handgun in his home for personal protection…
Justices Thomas and Gorsuch wrote scathing dissents, chastising the rest of the court for failing to grant the appeal a hearing. Gun rights advocates were greatly disappointed with the decision not to hear the case. San Diego, like the rest of California is run by liberals who care nothing about the people, their rights, the Constitution or the safety of people.
